Hi Thrill Seekers,
With new information set to be announced on Friday regarding the Hogwarts Express I’ve been going back through the information we’ve given here at Orlando Attraction Tickets.
From the last webcast Universal hosted we learnt the name of the main ride which turned out to be “Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts”, we had a good look at the Hogwarts Express and we found out which shops will be represented.
What we failed to do though was tell you a little bit about the shops, so I thought I’d put that right today.
Borgin and Burkes
Guests who want to discover the darker side of magic will be able to explore Knockturn Alley and visit one of its most infamous shops, Borgin and Burkes. The dark arts specialty shop offers a wide range of dark objects such as Death Eater Masks (pictured below), skulls and other sinister items.
We believe that the Death Eater Mask will be very popular… Halloween could be full of Death Eater’s this year 🙂
Madam Malkin’s Robes for All Occasions
Here guests will find a variety of Wizardwear such as a selection of Hogwarts school uniforms, ties, scarves, jumpers and cardigans, authentic wizard robes and character costumes, as well as other apparel and jewelry fashion items inspired by the four schools.
The new and improved Ollivanders will be bigger than the first Ollivanders (Hogsmeade) and will be located in its proper location in Diagon Alley.
Maker of fine wands since 382 BC Ollivanders is one of the Wizarding Worlds premier wand shops. Surrounded by towering walls of thousands of wand boxes stacked to the ceiling, visitors will be able to witness a magical experience of how the wand chooses the Wizard. Here guests will be able to purchase a unique wand or buy the wand of their favourite character.
Quality Quidditch Supplies
This shop will carry a wide assortment of Quidditch apparel and equipment including brooms, sweaters, snitches, Bludgers, Bludger bats, Quaffles and more. Weather you’re a fan of the Holyhead Harpies, the Chudley Cannons, Ireland or Bulgaria you can show your support with hats, pennants and a whole lot more.
Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes
Once inside this colourful 3 story shop, customer will find a remarkable cornucopia of novelty items, magical jokes and toys to please and amaze the mischievous child in us all. Items include Skiving snack boxes, Decoy Detonators, Extendable Ears, Pygm Puffs, Fanged Flyers and more…
Wiseacres Wizarding Equipment
For guests looking to round out their assortment of Wizarding essentials, Wiseacre’s is a place that cannot be missed. Visitors will have access to some unusual Wizarding wears including Binoculars, telescopes, armillary spheres, compasses, hourglasses and magnifying glasses.
Some great additional to the Wizarding World there, tomorrow I’ll take a look at some of the places you’ll be able to buy food.
